One of the more exciting items coming up this week will be a press conference releasing details of a lighting project for Fort Wayne Indiana’s Historic Wells Street Bridge. The above rendering is of the project at dawn. I will post details from the press conference next week after it happens.
Anyone wishing to donate should make a check to “Board of Park Commissioners” with a note stating it is for the Wells Street Bridge lighting fund. Mail the check to the Wells Corridor Business Association @ 1307 N. Wells St., Fort Wayne, IN 46808 or drop off donations @ Great Panes Glass, same address or G I Joe’s on Wells. This is tax-deductible because it is part of the Parks.
Did you know?
- It is last standing Iron Truss Bridge in Fort Wayne.
- In 1986, the bridge was studied for the possiblity of a hotel to be built on it’s deck.
